THIS WEEK @ THE PEABODY INSTITUTE

The much-anticipated second production of Peabody faculty composer Michael Hersch's acclaimed monodrama On the Threshold of Winter will take place on Saturday, October 3, at 8:00 pm. It is his first operatic work and depicts a single character struggling through the intense emotional and physical turmoil of her final weeks with cancer.

Peabody faculty artist Ah Young Hong, soprano, "delivered a tour de force" (The New Criterion) in the work's world premiere and will reprise the role for the Baltimore performance. James Matthew Daniel directs the Peabody production, and Tito Muñoz will conduct the New York-based guest ensemble NUNC, whose artistic director Miranda Cuckson was a driving force in the first staging of the work.

TICKETS for the performance, in Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall, are $25 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students with ID.
